Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential - Witty, finely-crafted, and meant to be heard, Bossypants is one of my favorite audiobooks of all time. Tina Fey knows how to deliver a good punch-line – and does so hilariously throughout her memoir. Her self-deprecating humor shines through, and this half-memoir, half-stand-up routine left me laughing for all in the subway car to hear. From her days in the Second City comedy troupe, to Saturday Night Live, to Hollywood, Fey's stories and memories will leave you in stitches. —Jess

Publisher's Summary

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update", before "Sarah Palin", Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both of those dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon - from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

Includes special, never-before-solicited opinions on breastfeeding, princesses, Photoshop, the electoral process, and Italian rum cake!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Awful"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better material


    Any additional comments?

    This book was awful. I'm a Tina Fey fan but I couldn't even get through the first few chapters without snoozing. The material was incredibly dry and just not up to Tina Fey par.

    "A truly great experience!"

    Heartfelt, hilarious, and down-to-earth. This audiobook is Tina Fey at her best. Hearing her words in her own voice is a great treat. From childhood to the 2008 Elections, Tina Fey provides a great account of her life, ambitions, and fears.

    Any additional comments?

    I love Tina Fey and wanted to like this book but after many attempts to listen to the book, I simply cannot. I end up turning it off after an hour or so every time. Others have loved it and it certainly came highly recommended. I suppose it's just not for me.

    "Tina Fey brings it."
    Would you listen to Bossypants again? Why?

    Yes. I laughed out loud in public and wasn't ashamed. When I need a good laugh again, I'll take another listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    Something about the line "cleaning the poop off your neck" (when referring to her daughter as a baby) has really stuck with me...


    Which character – as performed by Tina Fey – was your favorite?

    Her father.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Understanding the struggle between being the boss of a huge production, killing it on SNL again, and being an amazing mother.

    WELL SPENT I ENJOYED THE FINAL PART OF IT

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Would not. Expectations much higher. Starts out funny. Doesn't hold up. Does replay infamous Sara skits which are funny - but not the only place to hear them.
